Words to live by...

"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others." ~Author Unknown

"A good wife is her husband's biggest fan -- no matter how crazy he is." ~Me

"May God give you.. For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer." ~ Irish Blessing

Another phrase I never thought I'd have to say...

"Butts are not used to turn off lights"

Yep. Came out of my mouth. Teaching has to be the most hillarious profession in the world. Despite all of the stress swirling around my room right now, they are, in fact, still five and six year olds. Thank goodness for that.

I have a 4 1/2 year old and an almost 3 year old. Especially my 4 year old seems to come up with something everyday that we need to correct but at the same time we can hardly keep from laughing.

She started pre-school last week. I feel sorry for her teacher. When she went in to meet her teacher before school started she wouldn't talk to her. Afterwards she said she didn't talk to her new teacher because she was a stranger and she isn't supposed to talk to strangers. On the way out of school she saw a climbing wall in the gym. That was the only time she talked and she told her teacher that she was going to climb the walls. I think maybe it's her teacher that's going to be climbing the walls.

I thought I only had to say that one in sixth grade!!!

This week (so far) I've said, "We don't dance in class," "We don't sing in class," "We don't put our I. D. badge in our mouths," (in its enirety) and "We don't put our literature book on our head when we are supposed to be reading along with the story."

See, it gets better!!!!
Can't wait to see you! Do I get to see your classroom?
